Video Upload Times

Well, I upload a 10mb 30 second video in the .flv format (works well for youtube). It uploads quickly, but then spends most of the time processing. I haven’t seen it show up on my gig yet, so I was wondering if anyone knew how long video uploads take, or if I should just reupload it.

Hi. .flv is an almost obsolete format. Best use .mp4 for YouTube. Or read youtube’s instructions on formats. But flv should not be used anywhere, particularly as apple does not support it on any of its handheld devices.
